Various resources available for download from the internet...

Music Downloads

Yamaha Music Software
Downloadable computer software, MIDI files, Sheet Music and much more

eMusic.com MP3 music downloads
This MP3 store is the music geek's alternative to iTunes. The free trial includes 25 free song downloads and no obligation. Start downloading your FREE MP3s today and take two weeks to decide if you like eMusic.

Free MP3 music downloads
Download.com Music is your source for legal and free MP3 downloads. Download MP3s from thousands of artists.

iTunes (Free)
Download iTunes 7.3 Free for Mac and PC

The Hype Machine
The Hype Machine aggregates MP3s from the vast world of music blogs. Searching for an artist in The Hype Machine returns tons of results, and you can stream the songs inline in the results.

SeeqPod is a straight up MP3 search engine at first glance, but after you perform your first search you'll notice a fancy Flash app that makes it easy to create playlists in your browser via a simple drag-and-drop interface.

SkreemR is another simple, barebones MP3 search engine. Like Hype Machine, SkreemR pulls its content from across the internet and can stream any song in your browser.

Thesixtyone has positioned itself to be a Digg-like community for music, which makes it a great place to discover new music (though it still handles search like the rest of them).

Deezer is a well designed site with more of a focus on building playlists, rating songs, and other more advanced features for registered users (though you don't have to be registered to use the site). You can even view and listen to entire albums on Deezer.

BeeMP3 isn't really about streaming music or making playlists—it's more of a straight search and download site, providing details like bitrate, format, and frequency of the encoded music file.

Most of the music you'll find on Songza consists of live recordings, which is excellent for finding rare songs or performances, but unfortunately Songza isn't much for providing download links—but at least their player embeds nicely (as you can see above).

For those of you who want to make sure that you're not downloading any copyrighted material, CCHits aggregates Creative Commons-only music so you can download anything you want, guilt-free.

Sellaband is a music website which began in August 2006 to allow bands to raise the money to record a professional album. With the support of music industry professionals, any band that is able to sell 5000 "parts" is then provided with their own producer, studio, and A&R to record and promote an album. Bands are required to set up a profile and upload some of their music to attract "Believers". Parts are sold at US$10 each, giving the band US$50,000 to record, mix, and manufacture their album. Believers are then given a limited-edition copy of the album, a share of advertising revenue from the free download section of the site, and revenue from the sales of the CD.
